T or F? WA vs. Tele.
4 months ago

I recently read that an image taken with tele lens, and the same image taken with a WA lens(when cropped) can have the same image quality.  Let's say you take a picture of a bird in your yard that's 100 feet away with a 300mm lens.  Then you take the same subject at that same distance with a 15mm lens.   Then crop the WA image to be the same physical size as the image captured with the tele lens.  To even the playing field, lets agree that both were taken with the same camera(18mpx), both at f4, same WB and same ISO, same shutter speed.  After the cropping is complete, both images are printed at maybe 11X14.  Wouldn't the difference in images be easily apparent?  The article said that it would be hard to tell the difference.  I would disagree.  But am I correct in that thought?
